Midsummer Witness


Size: 40x40x1.5 inches

Midsummer Witness is a large square oil painting in semi-abstract, magical realism style, of a summer meadow with a tiny roe deer hidden among the thistles and flowers. It is 40x40 inches. This painting was inspired by a walk I took in July when the flowers were purple and the grasses were golden. I was near the Medway river and as I walked through the field I spotted a tiny roe deer who stood and watched me without any fear (unlike the fallow deer who run away quite fast). His face was mask-like and he looked like a pagan spirit revelling in the beautiful abundance of a midsummer meadow. The countryside in Sussex is magical to me, at any time, but the appearance of this imperious little deer made it more so. The combination of colours is subtle and English people everywhere will recognise the muted tones of a typical, not very sunny, summer’s day. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang, no frame needed. It comes with a certificate of authenticy and gifts form the artist. Prints available HERE  Videos or more pictures/close ups can be sent on request and visits to view the painting are welcome.
